How To Be Your Own Best Advocate

Sometimes you have to step up and ask for what you need, regardless of what others think or say, in a direct, respectful manner. That’s what self-advocacy is all about.

What is HPV?

HPV is a sexually transmitted viral infection which, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) “is so common that nearly all sexually active men and women get the virus at some point in their lives.” In fact, about 80 percent of sexually active people are infected with HPV at some point during their lives, but many of them never know it.


How To Treat HPV

The good news is, most HPV infections go away without you having to do a thing. Your body’s immune system takes care of the infection, generally within about two years. Of course, it helps if you take care of your health by following a nutritious diet, getting enough sleep, exercising regularly, and practicing safe sex.

The less than good news is that there’s no cure for HPV. However, you have treatment options for the health issues HPV can cause.
